Wow, Clark doesn't win in Arkansas! Otherwise it makes some sense.

I can't imagine Clark winning North Carolina or Oklahoma. Well, President Forver can give you weird results.

I ran Hillary Clinton against George W. Bush in the 2004 Scenario, and Hillary picked up Utah, Wyoming, and North Dakota! Bush won Rhode Island, California, and New York!

Winning as Clark is easy.

Look, Bush/Cheney vs. Clark/Dean



Unfortunately a scandal hit me in the last four days, so I lost New Jersey.

It is without Nader since I screwed his file up.  Dynamic, Regional, Economy matters, but without Fog or Spies.

Clark/Dean or Clark/Clinton has 7 CPs per move, so that is a huge advantage.  You can put 100% spin on something, be researching a scandal, and still be able to barnstorm.

Get one or two endorsements in your first days, depending on how many available there are for issue momentum bonuses.  Focus the advertising on positive leadership stuff since yours is so high.

That's what's weird. I somehow lost Vermont, Hawaii and Washington but won those two despite losing Arkansas.

The game weights Oklahoma as not Republican enough. Once as Edwards I won Oklahoma and almost won Kansas but also lost Hawaii and Massachusetts. And if I had won Kansas, I would've won that game, grrrrr...

I have never seen a political game realistic enough that it's worth buying.

I like it because it's fun, not because it's realistic.  If you want a game that accurately models real-life politics, I think you're going to be sorely disappointed. Smiley

A tip:

Turn Dynamicism (or whatever it is) OFF. This makes for terribly ridiculous results.

I think even with it off things get crazy. I played Kerry and won Texas, but still lost the election.
